    (E-collar, pet cone, "cone of shame") When your animal has to wear one of those cones, it is best to tell your animal that the cone is a "magic healing cone" (or simply a "healing cone"). After all, when they wear it, it helps them to heal faster than if they were not wearing it. By calling it a "magic healing cone", you are focusing on healing and associating positive energy with the cone and the experience of your animal wearing it.
